Delhi Government Approves Separate Board Formation For 2,700 Schools In City: On Saturday, the Delhi Government approved the formation of a separate school board for nearly 2,700 schools in the city. At the beginning, 21-22 state government schools will be affiliated with the Delhi School Board (DBSE) and, in the next four-five years, all schools will be brought under it, Chief Minister Arvind Kejriwal said in a press conference.
While announcing this, Arvind Kejriwal said-Today we have approved the formation of the Delhi School Education Board in the Delhi Cabinet. It’s not a minor board of education. This was necessary to set up an education board because in the last six years, we have started spending about 25% of Delhi’s budget on education every year.
There are about 1,000 government schools in Delhi and about 1,700 private schools, most of them affiliated with the CBSE, in the city.The new Board will have a governing body headed by the Minister of Education of the Delhi Government and an executive body headed by the Chief Executive Officer, said Mr. Kejriwal.
The DBSE will be aimed at teaching the kind of education that prepares “strongly patriotic” and self-reliant students who serve society and the country in a selfless manner, he said. The Board will bring together best international practises and high-end techniques in the field of school education. It will provide education as per the aptitude of the students, he added.
